Well, you'll be liable for the loan, but that's about it, unless you had something to to with the so-called "accident" (which is rarely accidental, and more often the result of negligence).

Are you liable for a car loan if the owner files bankruptcy and the car was charged off?

That depends on what you're asking. Who filed bankruptcy? The owner of the car or the owner (holder) of the car loan? Did you co-sign on the loan? If you co-signed on the loan and the other signer files for bankruptcy, yes you are liable for the loan. If the owner (holder) of the car loan files for bankruptcy, you are still liable to the owner's creditors (and you need to find out who they are so you can get the lien released).

If you co sign for an auto loan and the person you co signed for is in an accident can you as the co signer be liable for injuries or damages?

No, you can only be liable for the loan. If the car was totaled and did not have insurance then you can be held responsible for the balance on the loan. Any accident or damages that occurred would be the responsibility of the driver/owner of the vehicle. All your signature did was say that you will pay the loan if the borrower fails to do so.
